ALL SEASONS – A HAPPY INDEPENDENCE WEEKEND

 

     Hello All Seasons Bloggers,

Sunday July 2 – Wed. July 5 .     Link open till 7 pm, Pacific time.

Thank you so much for putting out extra effort last week in linking last week. The owner of the V20 Link List told that it was caused by a bug having to do with a recent change on my blog. He is excellent in getting back and fixing right away – thank you Brent Riggs!

Your blogs were so vibrant, full of seasonal things to enjoy! Happy to see people enjoying life and  going with the flow of the Season!

Tuesday is Independence day in the USA, and many are extending the weekend till the 4th ! After Christmas this may be one of the most celebrated. Many towns and cities have a 4th of July parade, big picnics , ending in fire works at night! Whenever we can, we look up where there’s a parade (a great place for taking unusual pics!)

Am curious about when your Independence day (on the globe) is, and what you  or your family have made it a tradition.

 

NEW Here? Pres on CLICK to see what All SEASONS is all about!

This is Nimitz Blvd. in San Diego which previously housed the army base. Still they hold on to the tradition to wave a host of  flags along the whole Boulevard,for the 4th of July, and it is a beautiful sight.

 

 

 

 

To celebrate Independence day with a melting pot of several cultures, it means everyone contributes.

 

 

 

 

Are you going to be at the lake, or a picnic at the park? That’s what we always did when our kids were small

 

 

 

 

Ending with festive fire works

Now our kids have grown up, work or have their own adventures, we made it a habit to go to a place authentic for that part of the state and eat ethnic food.

 

 

What do you do in your countries’ “independence” (or comparable) day, and when do you celebrate it?

    Happy Independence Day for you and your family!
    We don’t celebrate it, we have the Day of German Reunion in octobre 3rd. Honestly, it isn’t such a big celebrating day for all our people, to much has gone wrong with the reunion as it could be a people celebration. Better not to write about…

    As you said, parades and fireworks and of course grilling food in the back yard for a great feast are my family traditions.

  3. The Husband and I like to check out the 4th of July Kiddies Parade. It’s the sweetest, darlingest, and fastest parade in our town, and we have a lot of parades. 🙂

    I was surprised to see how many communities did their firewords early this year. Not sure how I feel about that as than what do you see on the actual day. Enjoy a good feast! We had a little feast of our own yesterday. I made chicken, watermelon, and corn yesterday and found some brownies in the store. No BBQ sauce though, so I put a dash of paprika on the chicken. The kids gobbled it up!

    Freedom is one the most important things in our lives. Happy Independence Day! We celebrate it 11th of November (not time for picnics ;)) but that day we always take care of our souls (in churches) and bodies (at family dinners).
    Thank you for hosting ALL SEASONS.

  6. Happy 4th of July to you! Fabulous fireworks photo!

    Happy 4th of July, Jesh! I hope you celebrate Independence Day peacefully and joyously. We celebrate Australia Day on January 26. You can read more about it here: http://nicholasjv.blogspot.com.au/2012/01/australia-day-2012.html
    Thanks for hosting!

  8. Feeling cold here in Melbourne, Jesh…

    I believe my nephew was on the USS Nimitz, a good name to remember for the holiday. I like the parades and festivals and tend to go to the smaller ones. One of the biggest used to be way too close to home and I’m happy they moved it. Happy Fourth to you and your family.

    We had a cookout with our daughter yesterday…fireworks have been going off here for over a week. Big bangs. Several a night.

    Our fireworks show happened last night. We have resorted to going out by the gully near our house to watch them. We just walk on over & watch as they explode with color over the trees. No traffic, no noise…just the two of us and the brilliant sky. Other than that, we don’t really do anything special. Happy 4th! Have an awesome week my friend.

    I guess my independence day is July 3rd. That’s the day I got on a plane to the South Pacific. It took so long, I didn’t get there until July 5th!

      Oh, what a killer flight – my longest was only 14 hours.

  13. mpuppal says:

    We do celebrate important events with pomp and show in India!

  14. Happy 4th of July week! I love the effect you got with your fireworks photo. That’s difficult to do!

      Thank you Sharon – hope you had a great Indpendence Day:)
      I’ll pass it on hubby about the fire work – he had a photo assignment at Disney land when he took a photo class.

    Sorry I missed visiting with you this week. We joined our daughter’s family and a visiting exchange student from Spain on a mini-vacation in Wisconsin. Cannot do much with just an iPhone and limited Wi-Fi. Thanks for your kind comments on my post!

Love your comment! For you on Blogspot, I'll reply on your blog, since you otherwise won't see my reply.
